PREFACE 

The ever-increasing interest in biblical research and inquiry 
has also increased the demand for Bible dictionaries and 
encyclopedias, especially for those that deal with the etymol- 
ogy of proper names in the Scriptures. It may be affirmed, 
and easily proven, that scriptural names were not arbitrarily 
chosen but selected with the idea of defining the relation of 
the bearer to God and for the purpose of expressing some 
important general truth. The remarkable feature of sacred 
history is that God alone is exalted. This feature was por- 
trayed in the actions, conditions, and functions of men pos- 
sessing names indicating natures either allied to or separated 
from the Divine. 

Many persons have read the Bible from early youth but 
have failed to find any permanent help from its sacred pages. 
It has been to them little more than a history of an ancient 
nation, the poetry of an Eastern people, the story of a won- 
drous life, or a collection of precepts far too pure and undevi- 
ating for everyday life. To Bible students who do their own 
thinking, who delve beneath the surface and follow truth 
wherever it may lead, there is nothing more helpful than a 
familiarity with the literal meaning of proper names in the 
Bible. We can no more fathom the profound depths of the 
Scriptures without a knowledge of the literal meaning of 
these names than we can solve mathematical problems with- 
out a knowledge of numerical values. The value of a full 
understanding of the original significance of the proper names 
in the Bible is beyond any possible computation and measure- 
ment, and the literal meaning of these names is the keynote 
of this understanding. 

Realizing the need of a concise and comprehensive dic- 
tionary of the proper names in the Bible led me to compile 
such a work. This dictionary is composed of definitions 
selected from accredited authorities. It is the result of ex- 
tended research and credit of indebtedness to these authorities 
is unreservedly made.

8 DICTIONARY OF BIBLE PROPER NAMES 

With the increased and systematic study now given to 
various portions of the Bible and the growing interest in 
Scripture exegesis, among all denominations, the literal mean- 
ing of proper names with which the Scriptures abound can 
hardly fail to elicit a larger share of investigation. Each 
name in the Bible has its own distinct significance and fills 
an important place in the understanding of the Bible. There- 
fore, let us seek by study, reason, and revelation, to understand 
the original significance of these names and reap the benefits 
which will accrue from this understanding. 

Cyrus A. Potts. 



INTRODUCTION 

Originally proper names were not chosen to merely 
designate persons, places, etc., but to indicate some distinct 
characteristic that is known to belong to them. This applies 
to all names whether it be that of the Supreme Being or of 
the most obscure person or place. The distinct character- 
istic of the Supreme Being is power. The principal Hebrew 
name for the Supreme Being, Elohim, translated "God" in 
the English Bible, is derived from an ancient Hebrew root 
denoting power. The plural form, Elohim (Gods), instead 
of pointing to polytheism is applied to God as the fullness 
of power — the eternal Godhead (Rom. 1: 20). Jehovah, mean- 
ing "the existing one," another Hebrew name for the Supreme 
Being, occupies the same relation to Elohim that force does 
to power. Force is power manifested, Jehovah is the man- 
ifested or revealed Elohim. Thus the expression, Lord God 
(Jehovah-Elohim), meaning pow r er manifested, indicates the 
entire administration of God by which he manifests himself 
and his attributes to men. 

The Bible tells us that no man can see God's face and live. 
No one has seen power of any kind at any time; all that the 
physical senses can apprehend is the manifestation of power. 
Power can be seen only a posteriori; that is, from its man- 
ifestation. Elohim can be seen only through his manifesta- 
tion, that is, the Invisible is a true reading of the visible (Rom. 
1:20). The scriptural expression, "to walk in the name of 
God" is to experience his power. Such expressions as "the 
name of Christ" (2 Tim. 2: 19), "to believe in Christ's name" 
(John 1:12), "saved by his name" (Acts 4:12), "to have 
life through his name" (John 20:31), refer to the manifesta- 
tion of divine power as demonstrated by Christ Jesus. 

Names are used in the Bible to portray good and evil agen- 
cies and forces, uniting in a perfect degree that to which the 
name applies, that is, scriptural names are true to type. Rightly 
understood these names focus the human mind on individual-

ities instead of persons and are infinitely more important 
as a type than as a distinguishing label. The Bible has a 
fourfold sense, consisting of the literal, or historical; alle- 
gorical; moral; spiritual. Proper names enter into all these 
significations and are the "warp and weft" of Scripture exege- 
sis. Hence the importance of knowing the meaning of Scripture 
proper names at once becomes evident. 

In this work all proper names occurring in the Old and 
New Testaments are defined. These names are arranged in 
alphabetical order and the method of dealing with them is 
as follows : 

I. Pronunciation. A diacritical mark is employed for every 
clear vowel sound, and when not marked the vowel is invariably 
mute. Unaccented syllables are separated by a hyphen (-). 
Compound names are separated by an en dash (-). Primary 
accent (')• Secondary accent ("). 

a as in make; a as in courage; & as in add; & as in dare; a as 
in star; a as in all; a obscure as in liar. 

e as in eve; $ as in serene; 8 as in end; e as in her; e obscure 
as in fuel. 

I as in sight; i as in idea; i as in pity; l obtuse as in firm; 
l obscure as in ruin. 

6 as in bold; 6 as in obey; 6 as in lord; 6 as in odd; obscure 
as in valor. 

U as in use; tl as in humane; u as in rumor; ll as in full; ii 
as in up; ii as in urn. 

y as in style; y as in myth. 

g soft as in cent; C hard not marked. 

£ soft as in Genesis; g hard before e and i, as in Gethsemane 
and Gihon; g hard otherwise not marked. 

§ as z in muse; X as gs in Alexander; x as ks in Exodus. 

II. Lexical References. Immediately following each name is 
a number which refers to a corresponding number in the 
Hebrew and Greek Lexicons in Strong's Concordance of the 



INTRODUCTION 11 

Bible. Numbers preceded by the letter "H" refer to the 
Hebrew Lexicon, and those preceded by the letter "G" refer 
to the Greek Lexicon. These lexicons contain all the Hebrew, 
Chaldee, and Greek words in the original Scriptures, showing 
the derivation and common meaning of such words, and 
giving a complete list of the different English words into 
which each word is translated in the Bible. These lexical 
explanations are so clear that even the original languages 
in which the Scriptures were written are brought in easy 
reach of every reader of English. 

III. Latin Meaning. The Latin meanings of names follow 
the lexical references. These definitions invariably throw some 
light on the significance of proper names and assist the stu- 
dent, hermeneutically, in the interpretation of the Bible. 
Although the original Scriptures were given to man in the 
Hebrew and Greek, they have since extended to every tongue 
and nation. At a very early period a Latin version was made 
from the Septuagint, and the Latin language has since occu- 
pied a prominent place in biblical translations. The super- 
scription placed over Jesus at the crucifixion was written in 
Greek, Latin, and Hebrew. Luke 23 : 38. 

IV. Literal Meaning. The importance of a full explication 
of proper names in the Bible cannot be overestimated. The 
literal meaning of these names is the chief factor in determining 
their significance. Proper names among the Jews were all 
significant and in most instances expressive of religious feel- 
ing. In the Elder Scriptures the Jews formulated a complete 
system of doctrines by employing a peculiar set of names, 
words, and phrases, figuratively. In the New Testament 
this nomenclature is approved and often quoted. 

V. Identification. After the punctuation mark ( : — ) appears 
a brief identification of the name under consideration. This 
will also be found an aid to the student in determining the 
significance of proper names, as it is highly important to 
know whether the name is of a person, place, river, moun- 
tain, etc., as each has its own peculiar significance. Hebrew 
names were conferred not merely for the purpose of identifi- 
cation but because of an idea they expressed. This under- 
lying idea can still be made apparent by taking into consid- 



12 DICTIONARY OF BIBLE PROPER NAMES 

eration historical events, i. e., identification, and the literal 
meaning of the name. 

VI. Comparisons. A name having a similar meaning to 
the one under consideration is given in capital letters and 
enclosed in brackets. 

VII. Scriptural References. In each instance a single 
scriptural reference is given. These references in some manner 
verify the information that precedes them. 

VIII. General Signification. The rules laid down herein, if 
applied, will enable any Bible student to determine the general 
signification of all Bible proper names. In some instances it 
will require a vast amount of study and thought to get the sig- 
nificance of names, while in other cases it may be easily deter- 
mined and expressed in a single word, as in the case of Abraham, 
signifying fidelity, Nathan, conscience, Noah, repose, etc. Many 
of the names occur only once and the historical events relative 
thereto are very meager, making it difficult to arrive at their 
significance. The meaning of those names occurring more fre- 
quently and interwoven more closely with historical events is 
less difficult to determine. It will be noted that in almost every 
instance more than one definition is given to each name. This 
is due to the fact that there is a variation of opinion of different 
authorities relative to the meaning of names; however, there is 
usually a similarity in these definitions. In cases where the 
definitions are at variance it may be attributed to the following 
causes: the English rendering of the name and the original 
word are at variance; the root word uncertain or unknown; 
names had a colloquial meaning, therefore, the definition of a 
single name might include the meaning in the Hebrew, Ara- 
maic, Arabic, and Babylonian tongues and each be at variance 
with the other.

SACRED BOOKS OF THE HUMAN RACE 

The sacred books of all nations are full of high thoughts 
and noble utterances. Such are the Koran of the Moham- 
medans, the Tripitaka of the Buddhists, the Yin-king of the 
Chinese, the Vedas of the Hindoos, the Zend-Avesta of the 
Parsees, and the Scriptures of the Christians. The Koran 
is the most recent, dating from the seventh century after the 
Christian era. It is a compound of quotations from both 
the Old and New Testaments and from the Talmud. It is 
the work of Mohammed and reflects the various experiences 
of the author. The Tripitaka contain sublime morals and 
pure aspirations, Gautama, the founder of Buddhism, the 
author, lived in the sixth century B. C. The sacred writings 
of the Chinese are called Yih-king, or Five Kings, the word 
"king" meaning web of cloth. From this it is presumed that 
they were originally written on five rolls of cloth. They 
contain the wise sayings from sages on the duties of life and 
are traceable back to the eleventh century before the Christian 
era. The Vedas, a collection of hymns, more or less sublime, 
are the most ancient books in the language of the Hindoos, 
but they do not antedate the twelfth century B. C. The 
Zend-Avesta of the Parsees, next to the Christian Bible, is 
reckoned among scholars as being the greatest and most 
learned of sacred writings. Zoroaster, whose sayings it con- 
tains, lived and worked in the twelfth century before our 
era. Moses wrote the Pentateuch fifteen hundred years 
before the birth of Jesus, therefore that portion of the Scrip- 
tures is at least three hundred years older than the most ancient 
of other sacred writings. The Eddas, a semi-sacred work of 
the old Scandinavian tribes, was first given to the world in 
the fourteenth century A. D.

SUMMARY OF THE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE 

The Jews divided their Sacred Books into three parts. 

1. The Law (Torah), comprising the five books of Moses. 

2. The Prophets (Nebim), comprising the books of Joshua, 
Judges, 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah, 
Ezekiel, and the twelve Minor Prophets. 3. The Writings 
(Kethubim), comprising the Psalms, Proverbs, Job, Song of 
Solomon, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, Esther, Daniel, 
Ezra, Nehemiah, 1 and 2 Chronicles. 

There are four main divisions in the Old Testament of the

Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, known as 
the five books of Moses. 2. The Historical Books, from 
Joshua to the end of the book of Esther. 3. The Poetical or 
Devotional Books from Job to the Song of Solomon. 4. The 
Prophetical Books from Isaiah to Malachi. 

The books of the New Testament may be grouped as fol- 
lows. 1. Historical Books, comprising the Four Gospels and 
the Acts of the Apostles. 2. Didactic, consisting of the Doc- 
trinal Epistles of Paul addressed to Churches, viz., Romans, 
Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Thessalonians 
and Hebrews. The Pastoral Epistles, addressed to Timothy 
and Titus. Special Epistle, addressed to an individual, viz., 
Philemon. The General Epistles, addressed to the Church 
at large: one of St. James, two of St. Peter, three of St. John 
and one of Jude. 3. Prophetic. The Revelation St. John.

GENEALOGY OF JESUS THE CHRIST 

Genealogical lists are found in both the Old and New 
Testaments. The genealogy of Jesus the Christ is the only 
one given in the New Testament. There are two lists of the 
human ancestors of Jesus; one, given in the first chapter of 
Matthew, beginning with Abraham, and the other in the third 
chapter of Luke, beginning with Adam. It will be noted that 
these two pedigrees of the Master do not harmonize and the 
differences between the lists given by Matthew and Luke 
have been variously explained. From an historical stand- 
point these lists are, no doubt, incomplete, but the value of 
them will be found to be not merely historical but in a delinea- 
tion of spiritual unfoldment. Any student who will sub- 
stitute the spiritual signification of these names for their 
literal meaning will find a continuity that relates a story 
beyond the mere history indicated. Some of the richest 
treasures of the Bible lie beneath what has been looked upon 
as mere genealogy. The real fabric is not upon the surface 
but beneath, in the original meaning of the proper names 
employed by scriptural writers.

THE NAMES OF THE HEBREW MONTHS 

The terms for "month" and "moon" have the same close 
connection in the Hebrew language as in our own and in the 
Indo-European languages generally. The most important 
point in connection with the month of the Hebrews is its 
length, and the mode by which it is calculated. The moon 
played an important part in the life and history of the He- 
brews as a measurer of time. Its very conspicuous and regu- 
larly occurring changes led all people in ancient days to use 
it for measuring time. Like so many other ancient peoples, 
the Hebrews also used the period during which the moon 
accomplishes its changes as a unit of time — the month. Their 
year was made up of twelve moon-months of twenty-nine 
and one-half days each. The Hebrews were also acquainted 
with the solar year. The discrepancy between the solar and 
lunar year they then smoothed over by means of an inter- 
calary month inserted about every third year which was 
called Veadar, that is, the additional Adar, bringing up the 
number to thirteen. No notice, however, is taken of such 
month in the Bible. The usual method of designating the 
months by their numerical order, e. g., "the second month" 
(Gen. 7: 11), "the fourth month" (2 Kings 15: 3), was generally 
retained even when the names were given; e. g., "in the month 
Zif, which is the second month" (1 Kings 6: 1), "in the third 
month, that is, the month of Sivan" (Esth. 8:9). The identi- 
fication of the Hebrew months with our own cannot be effected 
with precision on account of the variations that must inevitably 
exist between the lunar and the solar month.
